[NTT078] 6SISS - In Pallid Nights Originating from within the Belgian borders, the name 6SISS - an alias taken on by Peter Adriaenssens - is rapidly making its way to a more international audience... and rightfully so. Having witnessed several of his live performances I think it's safe to say that 6SISS' music envelops a wide array of influences, ranging from intricate IDM, dub, techno and downtempo work to ominous and spacious sound scapes.....

David Deschuyteneer (aka Ronny Ragtroll/Affective Disorder), a good friend and an exceptionally talented artist, excels in many forms of both graphical and sonic art. With his "Greatest Clubhits From Beyond" he crawls back into the skin of Ronny Ragtroll, as he did a long time ago for his previous Entity release "Smart Disable For All". Rising from beyond space-time borders into a universe of chill, David might as well be rightfully marked as the inventor of space disco hop...

"Interference" is an exploratory descent into the darker, more mysterious corners of the mind by means of processed instrumentals, field recordings and synthetically generated ambience. Like a puzzle, it incorporates fragments of recordings, such as the magnificent cello/flute improvisation by Ilia Saveliev and Bogdan Dullsky, Idle Sunder's "fieldscape" experiments, Cisfinitum's marvelous drones with enchanting vocals by Anzhel Hutopia, and more, *much* more!
